Low volume is just one approach. You will find other methods as well. It's a pretty good approach for starting out, beginner through novice. But the main complaint about it is that after your body adapts, you will probably require 2 or more work sets of that exercise. Kind of depends on you Now let's look at an example of where it might fit in nicely. You're now an intermediate, and have been doing a strength cycle for 4-5 weeks, or a higher volume (number of sets) with lower reps, say 4-6, at a higher % 1 RMcould be doing something like 3-5 X 5 to set up a strength base. Then you decide to take a low volume approach for hypertrophy and hit 1-2 all out worksets in the 8-12 rep range (after warm ups), with very high intensity for a few weeks. It's a change, and it will take a while to adapt to, and it could be useful in that situation. As Kenny and others have said, most anything will work, but nothing works forever, so forget about adopting one specific format to use forever.
Thank you for the advice.
Yes, I had no intention of continuing to do the same exercises, or even combinations of exercises forever. I am just starting, yes, a few weeks so far, and I will probably try to mix this up in a month or so.
Thanks for confirming what I thought though, but I still have one questIon:
What is RM? I know it means Rep Maximum, and I have looked at the information about it on the site(Like the calculator), but I'm not sure I understand it.
Thanks before hand =)
